I was thinking about going back to a story I tried writing a while ago. Rather than a zombie apocalypse, it's only one county or one part of the world that gets overrun with a class three outbreak. The rest of the world quarantines said country and moves on, leaving the residents of that place to fend for themselves. I know, zombies are pretty much a trope in themselves at this point but hey, I write for fun and to express myself so I don't really give a damn. The quarantined country/part of the world is Northern Ireland. Where I live. To put a long story short, compared to the rest of the UK (or the rest of Ireland, depending on what your views are) it's living in the dark ages or at least the politicians and the people who vote for them are. Recently they wanted to pass a bill that would allow you to refuse services to someone if it was against your religion, most notably Christians refusing services to gay people. Anyway, this has only come to my attention story-wise as there are two characters in a gay relationship. My question is, even in a country that's still living in the dark ages, would homophobia still be a thing or would people care too much about surviving?
